What is so special about it?
This is not the type of coconut oil that you may buy in a supermarket.

What does it mean to people on Tanna island?
Your purchase helps isolated communities of Tanna Island, which earn much-needed money through their coconut plantations. Many of those plantations were abandoned to weeds after the market for Tanna Island copra dried up in the 1980s, and Tanna Farm prides istelf on helping revitalise a vital industry. “It encourages the community not to just rely on their old coconut trees, but to start planting new ones,” says grower Loughman Charlie.
Tanna Farms business partner Ben Kaurua says the ‘Vanuatu – New Zealand’ partnership of Tanna Farms is taking his island’s coconut oil to the world.
“We’re building a bridge from Tanna Island to Port Vila, New Zealand and Australia. And it’s changing lives. We’re not about giving handouts,” says partner Jono Bushell. “We’re about teaching skills and empowering communities to create their own sustainable future.”
